What happens after I apply?
Create your profile
Your profile is your personal business card!
We compile your personal application package, check through your application form childcare and personal references to get to know you and your motivation deeply. We correct it and translate it if it is necessary. The more detailed and informative your profile is the better chance you have to find a host family.
Phone interview training
It is very important you should be prepared for the phone interview. Please remember: Your host family also knows you only from your profile and the phone calls.
We handle over a complex phone interview training with lots of advice to you to be as successful as possible on your phone interview. We also run a mock phone interview with you via Skype to be absolutely ready for the real one!
Au pair guide book
You will also be provided with a complete Au pair Hand book (in two languages). Before you leave for your host family, you will have the chance to learn more about child safety, culture, age appropriate activities and personal safety in abroad.
Once we have all the information, we will work hard to match you to a suitable family. We will liaise with our partner agencies to find a suitable family that can fit in with your needs. But, you need to be aware that the selection process can take 1-3 weeks, sometimes longer. It depends on your expectation, and the demand. As a result I strongly advise you to apply as soon as possible. We will keep you informed
We link you up!
The prospective host families will review your application and if they feel that your profile fits with their requirements we will send you details of them and will arrange a Skype or phone to talk to them by telephone or Skype.
After the interview, you get some time to decide if this is the right match for you. Please keep us informed about the details of the interview and your feelings.
Arrange a letter of invitation
On confirmation that both you and the family are happy, we will provide our partner agency with your details to complete the letter of invitation.
Once we have received the letter of invitation we would forward it to you immediately and you can start planning for your travel to the UK.
Coordination of the arrival date and the travel to the UK should be arranged by you but we are here to assist you if you need.
Preparation for your departure
Once you have a mutually agreeable match we will coordinate an arrival place and date. When you have received your invitation letter planning begins for your travel to the UK!
